With slim chances of growing roots during my youth anywhere in Switzerland, because of my father’s profession, I was comfortable being on the move in and outside Switzerland after my studies, even before I joined Swisscontact. I joined on 1st April 1986; this was no 1st April joke – 33 years on I am still with them! My first placement was to East Java, Indonesia, with the task of developing the training section for Communication Electronics at the Vocational Education Development Centre in Malang. I loved to engage with people and contribute to their development; it was invigorating after my rather “dry” technology jobs back home. My passion for working with people and for peoples’ betterment has never left, neither has the curiosity for new places and new ways of life. I have been fortunate to continue meaningful work with Swisscontact throughout the years. Swisscontact, with values, people and ways of working that I respect, has been an exciting part of my life with valuable experience that I cherish.
